This book is based on a journal Jim Schreiner kept during his deployment to the Persian Gulf region for Operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM. Building upon that record and the recollections of other F-4G Wild Weasel aircrew, the authors show a slice of what life and war were like during that time. The pawns in the game, the ones that had to actually do the fighting and dying, were the hundreds of thousands of men and women who left their homes and families to live for seemingly endless months in the vast, trackless desert while the world stage-play unfolded. To them, the war was deeply personal. At times, the war was scary; at other times, it was funny as hell. Usually, if you survive the former, it turns into the latter.

This is an interesting read all round, about the operational experiences of one pilot in particular, undertaking a very specialist role in a long serving aircraft. Well illustrated throughout with copies of documents, diagrams and archive photos, I am sure it will appeal to the many Phantom fans out there as well as the military aviation historian.

Military Model Scene - Robin Buckland

The authors are both experienced tactical pilots who have served in the USAF & Schreiner flew F-4G Wild Weasels during the desert campaign. This is a very important book that looks into the largely untold story of the electronic war that is critical to modern air warfare – Highly Recommended.
